Forum: etree Subject: Who funds this?

I came across this audio archive about two weeks ago and so far I love it. It's the best thing to happen to the internet in a long time. It's amazing to have all of these high quality lossless live shows available for free. I'm curious, though, as to how this is all paid for. Surely this project must cost a fortune, and the fact that it is not a pay service makes me worry that it might disappear one day... Anyone know how this is possible?

The Internet Archive gets its funding in the same way most libraries do: foundations, goverment grants, and inkind donations.
We see libraries as important parts of living in a free society, oh and because it is fun. the thing we should fear most is when this all becomes unfun or unuseful.

for donors, see:
